Over three nights booked this month, my partner and I stayed under the care of the lovely folks at the Canal Park Inn. Our room had a classic comfort, with custom-made hardwood furnishings in smartly and charmingly designed spaces. The breakfast selections were tasty waffles, omelets or cereal and prepared over interesting conversation. The price was much better than in... More

Thank you so very much. We do aspire to create an environment here that is as inclusive as the city's melting pot reputation. People come to us from all over the United States and all over the world (which seems only right for an Inn so close to the Statue of Liberty's welcoming torch). It was a delight to meet... More

If you're looking to stay at a quaint and somewhat quirky historic inn in the heart of downtown New York, the Canal Park Inn is your place. A restored 19th century house, located on the border between Tribeca and SoHo, it's is within walking distance of the Hudson River Park, SoHo, Tribeca, Wall Street, World Trade Center Memorial, South Street...

You're quite right-- making breakfasts for our guests is a great source of pleasure for me and I enjoyed our morning talks too :). At breakfast some of our guests like to chat while others prefer time alone. We like to provide an atmosphere for both preferences. Thank you also for underscoring that we are a Bed and Breakfast and... More

I stayed at the Canal Park Inn with my mom, sisters, daughter, and niece. Between the 6 of us, we had the Batby Suite and the Kennedy Room. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. Just perfect for our girls trip to NYC! We really enjoyed the cozy charm of the old building, and the walking distance to the Hudson... More

It was such a pleasure to host the very special birthday(s) your family chose our Inn to celebrate. Thank you for your kind words about your stay here.

We had the pleasure of staying in the Kennedy Room for 5 nights on the first leg of our honeymoon.

The Canal Park Inn was outstanding. The old building is nothing short of cozy and charming. The owners that I had the pleasure of meeting, Kip and Sara were oh so sweet and welcoming. Being able to walk to Hudson River every night to watch the sunset was unbeatable! Of course breakfast every morning was very delicious and perfectly prepared... More

My husband and I stayed in the Kennedy Room for two nights. It is a small, cozy space and great for a weekend spent doing things outside. The room and bathroom are a little stuffy, but that is the only slightly negative thing to note. The location is very good (though busy at rush hour on weeknights of course), breakfast... More

Thanks so much guys! It was great to have you stay. The one negative note you mentioned: did you have trouble operating the A/C? You have your own climate control in each room, so you can actually keep the room just as cool or warm (and breezy or stuffy) as you like! Too bad, if you'd told us at breakfast... More

We stayed in the Kennedy room for three nights and it was comfortable and quiet. There is an air conditioner which kep the room cool and was remarkably quiet, so we had no problem running it at night. Breakfast waffles and granola were both very good. Kipp was an excellent host. We would definitely return.

Hi guys, thanks so much for your supportive response! We're very glad that you were comfortable and enjoyed the breakfasts. The air conditioner is state of the art so yes, it should do the trick for sound sleeping conditions! More

After a couple of working days in NYC, spending the nights at a boutique hotel near Times' square, it felt like coming home returning for my second visit at the Canal Park Inn for vacation with my son.

I had no idea that such a great place existed in Manhattan! The owner was very knowledgeable of the area, and provided a very filling and nutritious breakfast to get your day started! Located near the heart of Soho, and within walking distance of downtown Manhattan, this is perfect for the avid sightseer on foot. Not a big walking tourist?... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled on the border of Soho and Tribeca, our landmarked 1826 Canal House is ideally situated for experiencing the best New York has to offer—and still having a quiet place to call home at the end of the day. Surrounded by 5-star restaurants and a block away from the landscaped parks, open grass, tennis courts, and stunning sunsets at the Hudson River Park, we strike a perfect balance between nature and culture.The Osborne’s have owned 508 Canal Street since 1980. In this building, they raised their daughter, providing the building with family history built into the very walls. (Behind a renovation wall on the top floor of the building is hidden a mural painted by children at a particularly creative third birthday party.) The beds and several end tables in the Inn were built by Kipp Osborne, coming from the days when he and his wife, Margot, were furniture makers in Soho and Tribeca. ... more   less
